Browns Grab a QB in Round Four

Moving to grab their quarterback of the future, the Browns again passed over some potential offensive linemen to select our Sunday morning cover boy Luke McCown of Louisiana Tech.

As we reported, the Browns were enthusiastic about McCown during his workouts and over the off-season. The 6-4, 208 pound quarterback provides the team with a developmental prospect for the future. He was an All-Conference selection in 2001 and played in an aggressive passing offense at Louisiana Tech, which was often matched up against opponents with far-superior personnel. McCown's brother, Josh, is the current starting quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals.

Also of note: check out this chat transcript, which offered the first view of the players the Browns had in for workouts. Three of the six have now been drafted. One of those guys is still available. Props to chat guest Rob Rang for giving us our first view of the Browns future draft class.

McCown would move in as the third quarterback on the Browns depth chart, competing with Nate Hybl and Todd Husak for that role.
